    This is a short video of inventor Simone Giertz demonstrating the lipstick-applying robot she built (previously: her slap-you-awake alarm clock). It works pretty well provided you're going for that Heath Ledger's Joker look. I would not recommend using it before going out on ... / Continue →

    This is a video of young yo-yo master Hajime Miura performing at the 2015 World Yo-Yo Contest. He does things with two yo-yos I didn't even think were possible. How this performance didn't end in a giant knot is beyond me. I had a yo-yo in middle school but my mom confiscate... / Continue →
